This year the 3rd Annual BUMFS Fatherhood Outreach Grill Off was combined with the 2nd Annual Child and Family Expo. Instead of having individuals taste test and enter a secret ballot, we invited Michael Price, Burlington CEO; AJay Root, Health Dept. Administrator and Troy Ravenscroft, Superintendent of Schools to select the winner. The three individually named their favorite with Millstone BB-Q emerging as the winner and Duckies placing second. A Big Thank You goes out to Pilgrim’s Pride, Staples, Higsons Farm, Fox’s Pizza Den, Kingsford Charcoal, Duckies, Millstone BB-Q and Wanda’s Clocks and Trophies. This event was put on in part by Parents as Teachers. To learn more about PAT, please click the link below.

As a Direct Care Coordinator (DCC) since 2018 with previous experience working for the Safe At Home program, CPS and Foster Care to Therapist, I have been welcomed into my client’s homes. I feel fortunate and privileged to know these fine people and their growing families.
Communities are always willing to help families in need. “Our Neighbor”, a Lewis County charity, has accepted requests including rent payments, food for a family of eleven and clothing needs. No matter how small or large, this organization has never turned me or my families away.
I have witnessed mothers feeling hopeless to accomplishing things they never thought were possible including: attending college, obtaining a GED, acquiring a driver’s license and even receiving a vehicle through Goodnews Garage.
This may seem small to most, but to my clients they can change the future for an entire family.
